Dean's Message

Prof. Uma C. Saha

Dean of Academics

Every citizen of our country has the fundamental rights to be educated, but only a fortunate few are privileged enough to get an opportunity to study in an Institute that has a rich historical legacy. Xavier Institute of Development Action and Studies (XIDAS) is one of the Xavier Brand Management Schools in the heartland of the country and have been in existence for more than two decades. XIDAS as a leading Management School is known for their excellence in grooming and building dynamic leaders, who cater to the need of the corporate houses as well as development organisation and excel among the contemporary groups.

XIDAS imparts quality education with syllabus tailored to the latest requirements of the industry, corporate and developmental organisation following AICTE guidelines. With globalisation, new business opportunities are opening up. Management students can now seek careers in diverse domain- some students can opt their career in business management with specialisation in Marketing, Finance and HR in sectors like Manufacturing, Retail, Telecom, FMCG and Pharmaceuticals. Simultaneously some students can opt for their career in Rural Management. As in India more than 60 percent population resides in rural area and in recent times rural development has drawn more and more attention than ever before. Professional Rural managers can take care of the rural development of backward and unattended areas and assist the villagers in the process of improvement, growth and expansion, so that the entire nation can easily accomplish progress and prosperity.

XIDAS is a member of the International Association of Jesuit Business Schools (IAJBS), a member of Xavier Association of Management Institutes (XAMI) and Voluntary Action Network of India (VANI). It has excellent academic collaboration with leading Business Schools of the country such as XLRI, Jamshedpur; XIM, Bhubaneshwar; XISS, Ranchi, IRMA, Anand and International Organisations like Broederlijk Delen, Belgium, Vlaams Internationaal Centrum (VIC), Belgium, Universities of Leuven, Antwerpen and the Jesuits of Belgium, Holland, Germany, Switzerland and USA.

Students get ample opportunity to prove themselves in co-curricular activities, cultural and sporting events. Care is taken such that students live in conducive and healthy environment by providing spacious accommodation, hygienic food, clean environment and a hospitable staffs.

With this background I make my stand with confidence that XIDAS is the only Xavier brand Institute in this region, which delivers value based quality education with holistic learning and build-up dynamic leaders who will serve with distinction both in corporate as well as development organisation.
